Now, I'm not so sure as I seem to be developing a new appreciation for traditional cuts these days. Let's see what the general consensus is with a survey. Also, please post pics of your favorite...

    1964 gold cup just came in. Spotless. Looks new. Box has no serial number which stinks because I was told original everything. Did these not come with a serial number? Or was there a sleeve that’s missing? Thanks

    I had an SCG carry I sold to a buddy that was supposed to sell it back to me when I was ready to buy it back.....well that didn't quite work out as planned as he fell in love with it and really didn't want to sell it back last summer. Well it wasn't worth ruining a friendship over so I acquired...

    Hello Fellow Addicts, After much deliberation, soul searching, and mixed feelings on this, I am going to sell off all but a handful of guns. I have some debt that is unrelated to firearms, and it would be much smarter to pay this debt off rather than have these just sit in my safe unused. I...

    I'm listing this for my buddy @William Lear he can be reached at 480.283.3249. The gun has been shot --- but how much can you shoot a 44 magnum? The last time at the range we ran some 44 specials and those were delightful to shoot. It's very tight, no play or travel and is very good shooters...

    I recently was finally able to secure a very nice condition 1959 Colt National Match. The only minor detail missing was an original magazine or 2.

    Bought this 20 old year Colt from @Karl Beining to be used as a base gun. More than thrilled with the condition. Looks better than the pictures in the ad. https://www.1911addicts.com/threads/colt-01970a1cs-mkiv-70-series-45acp-pre-production-mfg-2001.120795/#post-1999689 Thanks Karl !!!

    Does anyone offer a 1911 pistol, made to the original specifications (dimensionally, tolerances) but with modern metallurgy and machining methods and practices?

If someone has one they can part with or happens to come across an ad or auction for one, I would certainly appreciate a heads up. I...

    I was finally able to get both of these recent acquisitions out of the Kali DOJ jail and out to the range on Friday.

    Had no interest in watching the inauguration so I went by my dealer's place and picked up this Colt that I just bought from @WoodrowAugustus instead. It's a good day to celebrate our 2nd Amendment and give the finger to the incoming regime.🖕

    A couple of weeks ago, I started a thread in which I asked for input regarding a “custom” Delta Elite being auctioned on GB since I was looking for a 10mm 1911 and have always liked the Deltas. I received good information from those of you who participated, and I thank you. Fast forward to this...
